booties for a baby


baby shoes are probably the most adorable things of all time. i loved making them for a friend's anticipated (and now brand new!) baby girl this past weekend. the tedium of small handwork usually drives me crazy, but not with these; the entire time making them i just couldn't stop smiling and wishing i had my very own baby girls back so i could outfit their little feet in one of my favorite fabrics- railroad engineer's denim. add some polka dot lining, pewter buttons, bright orange velcro and i'm a really happy little cobbler.

wait, i'm just going to add my vote of "those dresses are adorable" and "you are amazing" and "i love these baby shoes" to the post. Love it all Katie! Can you share an energy tip? How are you not thrashed at the end of the day with kids? I'm thinking that you have mad sewing/ craft skills so whipping up dresses doesn't take everything out of you? Keep em coming, i love reading your blog!

I was on a blog break and apparently missed these darlingest ever things.
can you make me a pair please, size 9? and don't skip out on the orange velcro, that just may be my favorite part!
